A Workbook for Beginning Bird Watchers
No other book for beginning bird watchers involves the reader so actively in the exciting first steps of learning to watch birds. This workbook is filled with quizzes and exercises that prepare the reader for going birding and help beginners develop a sense of accomplishment and progress. With each chapter covering a different aspect of bird watching, the author guides readers along a threefold path: learning how to really see birds, how to sort birds by category, and how to learn the easiest birds first. Plenty of room is provided for writing and sketching, and answers are supplied in the back of the book.

About the Author
Burton Guttman is a professor of biology who has been teaching birding workshops and courses for many years. His concern about society’s increasing alienation from the natural world — at a time when the earth needs our protection more than ever — motivated him to write a book that helps people get to know and love nature, so they will want to protect it.
